The world comes to Yale

About 10% of the Yale College Class of 2016 comes from outside the United States, and on Aug. 20, many of them arrived on campus for a four-day orientation program before the beginning of the school year.

The program is organized by the Office of International Students and Scholars and aims to help students from all over the world, many of whom travelled over 20 hours to make it to New Haven, become acclimatized to a new country and a new academic environment.

Yale University is home to graduate and undergraduate students from almost 120 countries and every continent — with 85-plus countries represented in Yale College alone.
